David Potter on Celtic winning Scottish Cup Finals from 1914 to 1951

CELTIC’S SCOTTISH CUP FINALS – Number 10…CELTIC 1-0 HIBS – HAMPDEN, 31 MARCH 1923 – The nine years between the last final between these two sides and this one had brought unbelievable changes to the world, to Scotland, Ireland and everywhere else, but the winners stayed the same as Celtic equalled the total of 10 Scottish Cup wins of Queen’s Park. Today on a dull day in front of a poorish crowd of about 82,000 (the weather was uninviting and supporters were short of money in the difficult days after the Great War) Celtic won 1-0 through a Joe Cassidy header when he took advantage of hesitation in the Hibs goal.

Joe Cassidy scored

The Celtic team was: Shaw, McNair and W. McStay; J McStay, Cringan and McFarlane; McAtee, Gallacher, Cassidy, McLean and Connolly.
